Fee status

The University of St Andrews will assess your fee status when you make an application to study with us.

Your fee status is determined by your settled status (for example, your nationality or your visa status in the UK) and your country of residence. This will determine the tuition fee you will pay for your programme.

We make fee status decisions in line with the Scottish fee status legislation.

At undergraduate level, there are four fee status categories:

  • Home (Scotland)
  • RUK (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland)
  • Islands (Channel Islands and Isle of Man)
  • Overseas.

At postgraduate level, there are two fee status categories:

  • Home (UK and Islands)
  • Overseas.

If we do not have enough information in your application to be able to assess your fee status, we will ask you to complete our fee status questionnaire. Your application cannot be considered until you have provided us with sufficient information to be able to assess your fee status.

You can find more information in our Fee Status Policy.

If you want to find out more information about fee status regulations and the definitions of fee status terms, you can visit the UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) website.
